The hamadryas baboon is listed as ‘vermin’ by the African Convention on the Conservation of Nature and Natural Resources. The Hamadryas has been exterminated in Egypt and reduced in numbers in other areas.  Locally the baboon is at risk from an increase in populated areas, overgrazing, development and deforestation which has lead to conflicts with people. Found in Africa (Ethiopia and Somalia), Saudi Arabia and Yemen.
